    This one was made for me by a friend. He passed away a few months after it was done.

    I have extraordinarily large hands. He took measurements and made the knife to fit them. He was very good at making canoes and row boats by hand as well. Quite the craftsman.

    RIP Jack!

    Prior to making the knife, he took an etching / engraving course (I think that's what it's called) at the local community college.

    My knife was the 1st time he used what he learned. It's not perfect, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Im the 4th generation of my family to own Mercator k55k. Great grandfather got one from a german officer in WW1. They have been made the same way since 1867. Easy to carry, good quality.

    These are my pocket knives:
    I love the curved Opinel.
    But also the 'shepherd'; the Friedr. Herder Abr. Sohn (Solingen-Germany).
    The one with the chain, it was my first knife.
